10 Of The Best Luxury SuperYacht Photographers

February 23, 2017

Written by Rachael Steele

Ships have captured the public imagination for thousands of years as a symbol of power, elegance and affluence. Passing through history as worthy subjects of artist and poets, capturing the essence of a regatta fleet or the details of the most opulent and innovative mega yacht of recent times is as integral as ever. The yachting industry is filled with talented photographers and filmmakers, and here we highlight 10 prolific names who have shot prestigious yachts and events.

Jeff Brown – Breed Media

Notable superyacht shots: Savannah, Galactica Star, Ann G.

Best known in recent times for photographing the interior and exterior of Feadship’s 2014 superyacht Savannah, Jeff Brown captures the whimsical and abstract elements of modern design while retaining the realism that often disappears in vibrant environments and under dramatic lighting.

Savannah - photo by Jeff Brown

Savannah – photo by Jeff Brown

In 2003 Jeff Brown co-founded Superyacht Media, and his expertise combined with that of his team catapulted the company into a leading position in media content for superyacht-related marketing worldwide. His background in design has awarded him an uncommon perspective when it comes to selecting the focus of his photography and videos, which in turn has resulted in over 100 magazine covers in the last seven years alone and repeat business from builders.

Six deck luxury yacht Invictus by Delta Marine from 2013 and Irimari by Sunrise Yachts from 2014 have also prospered from Jeff Brown’s ability to see behind the finished product to pinpoint the detail from the designers, from the colour choice for the en-suite mosaic to the grooves amidst the gloss of the formal dining table.
